​Community dentist? We want to hear from you

17 August 2018


Do you work within the CDS or PDS or have recently left the service and would like to share your views?


The BDA is exploring changes to the CDS and PDS in the UK. The findings will help support those working within the services and assist in the development of policy and strategy for the CDS and PDS, vulnerable populations and health inequalities.


We are looking for community and public service dentists to take part in interviews to share their experiences.


We will explore factors related to the work environment focusing on the impact of current changes and want to hear your experiences - positive or negative. We are looking to gain an understanding of how dentists feel about working in the service and the effects change is having.


The work is part of an ongoing project that aims to understand the current status of the CDS and PDS and the impact of ongoing changes on the services, its workforce and those it serves.


How to get involved

If you are currently a community or PDS dentist in the UK or have recently left the service and would like to support the BDA's work in this area by being interviewed, please read the participant information sheet and express your interest by completing the expression of interest form.


Interviews will be facilitated by the BDA Research Team and last approximately one hour. All contributions made will be anonymous.
